When you can't remember what it was like not to add gas at least every week, but...
When you can't remember what it was like not to have so much fun just driving around town.

when you come to a stop and a school bus comes to one behind you and your brakes make more noise than the bus.

when every drive home from work is fun and enjoyable.

I'm always amazed (just like last night), how awesome this car is driving at high speeds, downshifting between 4th 3rd 2nd and back up again at the sweet spot of the revs. That engine induction sound is sooo sweet. I've driven faster cars and they don't exhibit this type of driving excitement imho and this is just a NA V8.

I can only imagine how awesome driving a naturally aspirated V12 in a Ferrari or Aston Martin must feel - nirvana....

When you drive like an asshole because you think every road is a racetrack and owning an M increases your driving skills, when you think the rest of the world is completely envious of you because of your car, when you don't know how to parallel park, when you think the service department is dying to take your car for a ride every time you bring it in for maintenance ....

- when you're speaking to your GF via bluetooth and she gets distracted by the engine as you accelerate out of the toll booth at WOT.
- when all your better friends are girls all of a sudden (what? this doesn't happen to you?)
- when you do the school run in it and your kid jumps up and down yelling, "That was fun!"

...you add 15 miles of unnecessary road to a 1.5 mile trip to the supermarket.

...you drink a beer with your car in the garage AFTER you're done driving it.

...when you accidentally kick the tail end out while making a left turn through an intersection.

(Yes it was truly unintended. I'm accustomed to a Mazda3, and the M3 is a little more peppy. The amazing thing was when the back end wiggled out a little, the car never felt the slightest bit out of control)
